Goodbye Game Trailers – Looking Back At Their Best Shows

''Game Trailer closure represents the changing face of video game cultural. With the growth of independent sites, Youtubers and Twitch, the old guard have struggled to adapt. Now seems as good as time as any to reflect on the importance of ‘GT’ to video game culture.

So sad to see them go :|

It's the end of era. Makes me wonder which site will be next...and who'll pick up the E3 coverage gap they've left

NukaCola1607d ago (Edited 1607d ago )

GameSpot ran a lot of E3 coverage last year alongside IGN. At the end of day everything is online and hosted by their own selected people, like Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb with Bethesda.

I am a Kinda Funny member and they are the future for my gaming media for the next while anyway.

Odd hearing - just now no less - a site like GT going away before Kotaku.

@NukaCola

Aye plenty of other sites covered E3 but GT always had the 'grand' production. I won't miss Ijustine mind

It's a shame too because the most recent talent like Bosman has been some of their best...that latest video that pit the editors against each other in their love/hate of certain games was hands down some of the most genuinely funny stuff I've seen in games media for a bit. All of the GT crew was great (especially before they lost Elyse Willems)....hopefully all of those guys land on their feet & continue careers in games journalism...after IGN got bought out & ran into the ground, GT really filled that void for me w/ gaming sites creating worthwhile video content. Good time for Pixel Gate to pick up the torch?

@jb227 haha i wish i had the talent to! i'm just some bum who does this as a hobby!

Given the modern market, i wouldn't be shocked to see a lot of them run podcasts etc Pateron is pretty strong for this kinda thing

I would never sold out to Viacom everything Viacom touched tune to shit
I'm really sad about this :(

Although it is sad to see them go it was an inevitability I'm surprised they lasted this long considering they entered that site when Youtube first started.

Considering their site is merely about the trailers themselves they just couldn't compete with the giant like YouTube.

They were dead to me long ago when they got bought out and changed their style.

Legion211607d ago

I didn't like the new style either, but their content was still good. Just watched their stuff on YouTube instead.

_-EDMIX-_1606d ago

Ironically you're also saying the main reason why it's likely closing consider you're watching it on YouTube this site just couldn't compete with YouTube.

Watching anything on GameTrailers was just terrible it was just as bad as IGN.

nogoodusernamesleft1607d ago

i only watched avgn on it but now he does it on youtube. i didn't used this site for anything else.

zugdar1607d ago

Pop-fiction and Retrospectives were prime.
